Worst signing by the Lakers in a long time. Seriously, I don't think this guy is very good at all for the minimum let alone 65 million. Truly idiots and once again prove how incompetent our FO is now. Laker fans are going to boo this guy so much.

Here we go :laugh2:

This guy forgot how to catch a ball last season. He was absolutely terrible. With the way the game is shifting to smaller, quicker lineups, his breed is dying out. All of that for $64m?!

Early front runner for worst contract of the offseason.

Of the off season? Might be the worst contract ever considering who this guy is/what he has done/his skill set and the fact he would be a 3rd string at best but YO... He is better than Lopez and its not horrid because the money has gone up :rolleyes:

Its not just the contract but the player. They are banking on defense... He had Lebron/Shumpert and others around him helping defend and had to play very few minutes.... He is about to get big minutes from the lakers with nowhere near the defensive help.. Its going to end so badly. The lakers fans and franchise deserves so much better than this

There is rumor that the 4th year is a team Option which would make this slightly better and not the most moronic signing but it would still be bad.

Early front runner for worst contract of the offseason. I agree. He was so bad last year. He was the 2nd worst center in plus minus with Roy Hibbert being the worst. Like I said, I would hate this signing at veterans minimum let alone 64 million. This guy better produce or he will get booed out of LA after we had to put up with Hibbert. Lakers should have drafted Okafor.

Why are you people so surprised? With the cap going up like 40 million over the next 2 seasons, some of the most mediocre players in the NBA are going to get paid. It will be at the stage where every Tom, Dick, and Harry will be making 13+ million per season.

That's a bit harsh. I think it would have been a very good signing if the contract was $10m per just because it'd be such a bargain in the next 2-3 years of the cap going up

You are correct but just remember that if an NBA team could find a Tom, Dick and Harry off the street that was as good as these "mediocre" players they would sign them to the league minimum. From an economic perspective the NBA GMs have calculated that there is some incremental value between a street athlete and these free agents - about 15 million or so per year appears to be the calculated value.

Lol god damn it no. Okafor can score and that's really about it, they could have drafted Porzingas and I guess they really liked him, so do I, but even without Porzingas, they were right to take Russel over Oakafor.

I think the biggest issue is most of the "premium" free agents are re-signing with their teams because of the extra year and incrementally more per year max contract. It is usually a dollar and cent decision vs. basketball or destination decision

Mozzy went from being dunk on by blake rookie year to being worth 2 first rounders to winning a championship to getting a 4/65 deal just off averaging a point and a board in the playoffs

That's why he is the MOZGODDDDDDDDDD

If the 4th year is TO this deal isn't bad (as bad) as some of you make it seem. It would be more like a 3 year $48 million deal.

So the Lakers use him for 2 years $32 million then have a $16 million expiring contract that MOST teams will be looking at with all these max contracts to mid-tier players other teams are signing.

Mozgov had a bad year, not necessarily a bad career. The dude isn't a total lost cause. Even still, happy my Knicks didn't resign him and that we got Noah instead.

Mozgov works as a 20 mpg player. As long as he boxes out and performs above average on pick and roll, you should be fine Laker fans.

I don't know, but apparently the Spurs and Warriors were both after mozgov and the lakers have been "scouting" him all year. I don't know what they see in him, but I'd have to think this is more about the things he does well like PnR and defending spots ups, and PnR bigs, over going with a "name guy" that us laymen fans think would make sense or fit better. I've been hating on this signing for a while, but it's like 11 million equivalent to yesterday's money, and next year it'll be equivalent to a 9 million per yr. That's basically backup big money.

Who knows, maybe Lakers want to let the young talent develop and know they are going to be bad for a few more years and need to at least reach the salary cap floor so they gave someone money to suck along with them. All I can get out of it.

Watched him all the time in Denver. Lakers getting him might be to get to the minimum? I dont know there contrsct situation.

Mozzy isnt terrible. His hands are bricks, but he is a better defender than his plus minus indicates. Solid passer, decent post up guy. Not wprth 16 mil though. I say 12.

The worst part that i'm seeing reported now is that the Lakers have effectively removed their chances at signing 2 max free agents in '17. With their current young talent, that would have been a HUGE incentive for them in free agency. I mean, Griffin and Westbrook were on the table. Same with guys like Gordon Hayward and even Giannis. Sucks to leave all that possibility of enticement in forming a free-agent duo (making one free agent much more likely to sign if they're joining another big time player who can help them win) by the wayside for Tim ****ing Mozgov? I just do NOT get it at all. He may help them win 5 more games (I'm being extremely generous) than a replacement level min big. And then what? He's not a marketing presence. He's past his prime. I mean, just makes no sense. They are being sabotaged from within. As strange as it sounds, I'm ready for the Lakers to be good again, and it's just not going to happen any time soon.

In a nutshell, the problem is this: Spoiled rich children got the keys to the Ferrari and promptly fired the pit crew (coaches, scouts, ect) that kept it winning races and hired a backyard mechanic who can barely change the oil (chaz the bartender, other friends) It now has a cracked engine block, and is puking radiator fluid everywhere.

So naturally the new ownership went and got new expensive tires for it. :laugh:


But hey, it still looks beautiful on the outside with gorgeous red paint and a rich racing history (Sunny LA)


Just dont ask it to compete.....OR win. Because it isnt doing either until a new engine block is put in (ownership) and the radiator is replaced and flushed (GM).

The only redeeming factor is that he will definitely play better than he did this past year simply because hes further removed from surgery and will play on a team not expected to do ****. The downside is he will likely never play as well as he did when he was alongside LeBron and thats what it would take to justify his dollar amount.

In this market, the dollar amount is justified. Everyone is getting overpaid.

At least Brian Shaw is familiar with him. May be able to get something out of him. With our focus on the youth movement all they really want from the center is to board, block, occasional post and most importantly not be Hibbert.

I see this as part of tandem center plan, with another to come.

At least that's what I hope they're doing....

The contract may not be great but the dude used to be a great rim protector, especially when he first arrived to the Cavs. He probably still has it in him to alter shots at the rim, he's not so much a high BPG big. He just uses the rule of verticality well.

another downside is the last couple years of his contract, he projects a Dampier like impact from his early/mid 30's. Which isn't terrible, but not worth 13-17% of your cap either.

why not reach the salary floor with 1-2 year deals and let the young roster cook for another season, and try again next summer? This effectively takes them out of offering an additional max deal next summer.

I'm pretty sure they have room for an additional max this summer but no one, not even one player, will talk tot hem because they suck ***. If they just do 1 year deals it will be the same thing next year. Maybe a little better because D-Lo/Ingram could show a lot of promise but I doubt either come in as all-stars capable of drawing players. They'll just get turned down again. They need to add pieces to restore credibility.

They can't worry about that, they just need players to play with the kids. If someone does want to come next year, there likely will be a new CBA and an amnesty provision, they can always use that.

I agree but it's tough. The market is just so bloated that to sign players who restore you to some level of credibility takes deals like this.

The thing is, I think for them to expect to be players next year is too ambitious. I think they need a couple of seasons to build. I say they're 2-3 years away from being ready to start trying to really win again.

The thing is, he got paid like a starter when he is a bench player. He's a good burst for 20-25 minutes but you don't get much other than size and some rebounds. He has slippery hands and misses the easiest shots you won't believe. He makes Rubio's layup misses look beautiful. $8 million is a good price for him but man, I have no idea what the Lakers saw in him to get them over the hump. It's an odd pairing.

The only redeeming factor is that he will definitely play better than he did this past year simply because hes further removed from surgery and will play on a team not expected to do ****. The downside is he will likely never play as well as he did when he was alongside LeBron and thats what it would take to justify his dollar amount.

I haven't seen one contract yet that the player justifies his dollar amount. Maybe other than Clarkson

Lin. Heard Pau was in play too. And some guys are getting overpaid but have had far better RS imo. Mozzy was literally a detriment to the Cavs

Thats right. That was a really good deal for Indy. I see them in ECF next year if Durant stays west.

Last year yes he was. But I think the Lakers are chalking it up to his knee surgery. They are looking for their version of Bogut. I would have preferred they took Bogut and a pick if Golden's State could land Durant but I don't think that's going to happen.

What's the deal with Hibbert's contract? Weird to pay so much for a role playing center when you're a garbage team. It's not the worst fit in the world because he's a rim protector, rebounder, and screener when healthy. But he's also not a big minute guy, any semblance of a scorer, or a particularly versatile player.

If this were the Blazers or Mavericks I would understand it because I think Mozgov is a perfectly good player - but IDK about the Lakers. I guess it's worth rolling the dice for a rich franchise that Ingram/Clarkson become P&R valuable and Randle/Ingram become good scorers in the next 4 years.

The next thing you know the Laker will sign Luol Deng for $72M 😂 just to send fans over the edge.
